I have been working at United Rentals full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

#1 The benefits - full dental, eyes, medical 401k, paid vacations, six paid sick days, three floating (birthday, Anniversary DOH +1 more). Mediocre annual training. Fairly competitive pay.

Cons

Must own tools, inability to take vacation when company is busy (summer). No real opportunity for advancement, once you have a job it's hard to transfer to another location or level ie sales. Feel stuck, need to be "customer oriented" when dealing with ignorant users (read: Dumb people). Pay raises seem to be mere cost of living adjustments versus raise. Must have two sets of tools (you are a shop and road tech)

Advice to Management

Maybe a program which allows technicians to rotate between branches. More regional town hall meetings so the lower techs can address some issues with management.

    I worked at United Rentals full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    job security, biggest rental company in united states. Great stock. Have made some good moves over the last five years and have put themselves in position to succeed.

    Cons

    No matter how hard you work as a territory manager your pay will not go up because they are constantly changing territories and commission structure. Management is bad about putting equipment sales in house accounts so they don't have to pay the reps a commission on it.

    Advice to Management

    you have to spend money to make money.
